Yorkshire-based orthodontic firm bids to convert former council offices into new clinic in Bradford
The owner of a Yorkshire-based orthodontic firm is bidding to convert premises formerly occupied by Bradford Council into a brand new dental clinic.
Trinity House Orthodontics has submitted a planning application to turn the former council offices in Well Street, Bradford, into a new, state of the art orthodontic practice. The premises are currently vacant, and the application proposes a change of use from offices. Kershaw House, which is a listed building, was previously used as the council’s Skills for Work base, and is available to let.
Trinity House Orthodontics is a specialist practice, which has branches across Yorkshire. In addition to providing private treatment for adults, the chain also provides NHS treatment for children and teenagers.
The application, which will be reviewed by planning officers at Bradford Council, states that the practice owner will recruit local members of staff, diversifying the current positions on offer to add dental nurses and receptionists to the team of orthodontists and orthodontic therapists. The proposal also suggests that the central location will benefit young patients, who may currently have to miss lessons to see an orthodontist based out of town. The proximity of public transport links would make it easy for teenagers to get the treatment they need without having to miss a morning, afternoon or a full day of school.Join this Discussion
